Opinion in Brief

Dennis Prager: “One of the most important differences between the Right and the Left … is the difference between unhappy liberals and unhappy conservatives. Unhappy conservatives generally believe they are unhappy because life is inherently difficult and tragic, and because they have made some unwise decisions in life. But unhappy liberals generally believe they are unhappy because they have been persecuted. Ask unhappy leftists why they are unhappy and they are likely to respond that they are oppressed. This is the primary response given by unhappy leftist women, blacks, Latinos and gays. … The Left cultivates unhappiness by cultivating anger. It does this for the same reason wine growers cultivate grapes: No grapes, no wine; no anger, no Left (and no Democratic Party). And angry people are not happy people. … Unhappy Americans on the Right blame the problems inherent to life, and they blame themselves. Unhappy Americans on the Left blame America. That alone goes far in explaining the unbridgeable differences between Right and Left.”
